Summer has been in the air…in Austin, it has been sweltering with each day hotter than the last-I can say this definitively when I was named ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ by the Austin Critic’s Table! That’s HOT. Now, I am playing in idyllic Rockport, Massachusetts, which is about half an hour from Boston. It feels like the Berkshires on the Atlantic Ocean. The hall is absolutely gorgeous to look at and the acoustics are pretty incredible as well. I heard that the same acousticians from Seiji Ozawa Hall, helped build this hall…..
About a week ago, I was in London, recording the Bach concerti and 3 pieces with the English Chamber Orchestra. Talk about an incredible experience-I really deeply missed playing Bach when we wrapped up the sessions. That music does fill one’s soul and replenishes it daily too-and it’s so much better tasting than vitamins!
Here’s some pics from Rockport with my friends, Wendy Chen and Andres Diaz! We are opening the festival tonight with the Mendelssohn Trio in D minor and tomorrow we perform the humongous, Tchaikovsky Trio in A minor.
Happy Summer Days!!
Can you say YUM in my TUM??
